A man and woman each face felony charges following a traffic stop conducted by a Texas County Sheriff’s Department deputy late Wednesday in the Roby area.
Jesse L. Anderson, 37, of Hollister, was arrested on a probation violation warrant, and Gabrielle L. Dickinson, 23, of West Plains, is charged with delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful use of a weapon.
Sheriff Scott Lindsey said that a deputy on patrol initiated a traffic stop for a registration violation on Highway 17 just before midnight April 29. A records check on the driver, Anderson, indicated he had a felony arrest warrant for a probation violation.
Anderson was arrested on the warrant and a search of the vehicle was conducted. Lindsey said that during the search, drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine and a firearm were found.
The paraphernalia included items used in the distribution of drugs, such as a weight scale and individual bags containing methamphetamine, according to a report.
Dickinson was a passenger in the vehicle, Lindsey said, and was also arrested.
Both were taken to the Texas County Jail. Anderson is held without bond and Dickinson’s bond is set at $250,000.
